 How I Became a Blogger

Life story

By: Zdenko Kahlina

How I became a prolific blogger and learned to get beyond school essays
Some people think I am a journalist. My friends ask ME how I can possibly write as much as I do (on my blog), given all the responsibilities that I have. That’s because I have published (so far) more than 1,000 blogs on my web site. My REAL day job is as computer programmer for a big insurance company in Edmonton and blogging is just my hobby, which I discovered very late in my life…

 I already have wings, I want roots

Life in Edmonton

By: Melissa Milakovic

The whisperings, whirlings, wonderings, and writings of a dreamer, a dancer, a drawer, and a darling.
I fell asleep thinking about how easily people get swallowed into their current obsessions or, better yet, swallowed into whatever world they most comfortably relate to.

 The Gift of Not Giving a Thing

Family Life

By: Christella Morris

WHY I DON’T WANT ANY MORE PRESENTS FOR MY BOYS.
We’re pretty lucky in our family. I can cross off three out of four birthdays in May alone! Then Christmas and the fourth birthday (the youngest) are both taken care of in December. This makes for a lot less time worrying about buying presents and a lot more time thinking about how much crap stuff we have.

 Filling Empty Nest

Family life

By: Zdenko Kahlina

Our daughter moved to Ontario, so we are Empty Nesters now!
We are living in an empty nest: Wasn’t this the goal in our life? When children are young, we teach them to tie their own shoes, fix their own sandwiches, swim, ride bicycle, and eventually how to drive and do their own laundry. Parents spend time teaching their children in hopes they will be independent, productive young adults.
